Everybody thought that Boo Radley Radley was weird and gross. Everybody but Scout after Boo radley put a blanket around Scout while they were out during the winter in Maycomb. “As we drank our cocoa I noticed Atticus looking at me, first with curiosity, then with sternness. ’I thought I told you and Jem to stay put’ he said. ‘Why we did. We stayed-’ He said. ‘Then whose blanket is that?’ ‘Blanket?’ ‘Yes ma’am,blanket.

The twin Moons Glowed red this night, rain pored down in crimson hues, denotements of a deplorable omen on this planet. A single Mandalorian scout was running from a pack of shistavanen as they were stalking about the wet lands laughing, "Run…” growled one of the wolf like men. “Run all you optate meat, we can do this all night."

6/24, Chapter One: As the book begins, the readers are introduced to Scout, and her knowledge of Maycomb. I noticed how Scout’s narration sounded; she is telling the story as an adult but from a five year old’s point of view during the book, but her narrative included complex words such as “imprudent” (5) and “domiciled” (10), which is unlike what a child would say. Harper Lee uses the unique narration so that Scout would be able to provide background and context to Maycomb, but also so that readers would be able to see how Scout reacted and felt about the events in the book, and how it impacted her life growing up. Scout also used description and imagery as she told the story, which I found intriguing, since children don’t usually care for description and see things simplistically.

Jem’s lips moved, but his, “Yes sir,” was inaudible” (Lee 116). This illustrates Atticus’ true respectful gentleman personality as even despite what was said about him he refused to disrespect his elders and even tries to show Jem that by telling him to go talk to her, this also doubles to show the type of father figure Atticus
